The peppers should remain slightly crisp when done.
In a frying pan, brown the ground beef and chopped onion until fully cooked. Remove from heat.
In separate sauce pan or rice cooker. Cook rice and add salt to taste.
Combine cooked rice and brown beef and mix thoroughly. Add approximately 3-4 can of tomato sauce to beef and rice mixture. Stir until thoroughly mixed. Set remaining tomato sauce aside for later use. Add additional salt (if desired) and a couple of shakes of Worcestershire to taste. Blend thoroughly until heated through.
Stuff the pepper with meat and rice mixture. Pour remain tomato sauce over peppers. If there is any extra stuffing left over, use to fill the casserole dish, by placing the stuffing around the peppers to secure the peppers.
